Boy, it’s been a while since I’ve updated this space! Lots has been happening though including loads of new clients from 2017 and early 2018!
As I’m going through past sessions I can’t help but get excited for the new headshot clients I’ll be meeting for 2018. I’m often told that people are tired of the same old, same old when it comes to professional portraits against a backdrop. And I totally get it. A couple of years ago I set out to find a unique solution to this and one that would be within financial reach for most business professionals, students and entrepreneurs. I’m proud to say that this approach remains super successful and I’m glad that this style still resonates with the people of Ottawa!
The lovely Stacey contacted me hoping to update her headshots for 2018. Since she is an accomplished, award winning interior designer, we decided to use her beautiful home as the backdrop for these headshots as it would provide the opportunity to showcase her work a little at the same time. I’m so glad that you are thrilled with the outcome of these images, Stacey!
If you are interested in updating your own professional headshots this spring and are looking for a modern and relaxed approach, I’d love to work with you! These types of professional photos are perfect for use on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. They are also suitable for actors, musicians or even just for personal use. Headshots in Ottawa are a breeze with so many fabulous location options around the city. Get in touch today to discuss the possibilities!
A really fun challenge for me when I am thinking about locations to use for client headshot sessions is to select a place that wouldn’t ordinarily be seen as suitable (or even beautiful) and do my best to find the beauty in it. In the case of Sarah’s session, I suggested we use the area around her office building as well as the teensy little bit of park area across the street. This is an area of the city I’ve driven by about a million times and never would I have thought it beautiful any other time. But with the right model, the right light and a bit of thinking outside the box, we made it work beautifully!
Thanks so much for the wonderful session Sarah! I’m so pleased that you are thrilled with your images. I’m glad they convey exactly what you had hoped!
If you live in Ottawa and are interested in booking a professional head shot session this year, I’d love to hear from you! Let’s work together to create a one-of-a-kind set of images that tell the story you want to tell the world about yourself!
The fabulous Kristen’s indoor headshot session here in Ottawa is one of my personal favourites this year for sure. Don’t get me wrong – I do love a good outdoor headshot session (which I do very regularly!), but when a client has another unique location in mind, I’m typically more than happy to oblige. Especially when it’s a fun, trendy looking spot that will lend itself well to the overall look and feel that the client is wishing to convey. Casual, contemporary, relaxed and fun are all words I’d use to describe the images from this session.
I definitely don’t view modern lifestyle headshot sessions like this as a one-size-fits-all type of thing. Of course, I do have locations that I personally love and I am always more than willing to make suggestions based on areas I know that work well for most. But I always welcome client input as well. Taking an active role in deciding the particulars of this type of session really personalizes the experience for the client. So if you have been thinking about doing this type of portrait session with me, please know that I am always open to collaborating pre-session to make this the best experience for both of us!
Kristen, you totally rocked this and I am so thrilled that these were the exact type of professional portraits that you were hoping for! I am confident that these will serve you well for all of your personal, professional and social media needs.
